In an enchanted land where no one can die, can Death truly be kept away? Oz is about to find out.

Directly following the events of Glinda of Oz, Princess Ozma experiences horrible nightmares of impending death and destruction of her beloved fairy country. Despite the comfort of her best friend, Dorothy Gale, and her other companions, Ozma can't shake the feeling that something bad truly is coming.
Below Oz, a demon of shadow works to destroy an artifact called the Passion Fire, an eternal flame giving people of both Oz and Earth the desire to live, work, and love.
Meanwhile, Polychrome, the Rainbow's daughter, has found herself stranded again, but this time, there is a drought in Oz, and there's no telling when the rains might come back, bringing her father with them. However, she finds comfort in the company of Na'iya, a strange young man that stirs new feelings in her.
As the Passion Fire dies, people leave their jobs and even their lovers. Emerald City noble Lye Ten Opp is the first to notice, but the rest of Oz is soon to see their desires wane and life come to a halt.
What can Ozma do in the face of this new danger?

Product Information
File Size:
0.85 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
